. it was impressive the level of data they have and how they're able to use it to try and increase safety on the buses. so, i'm wondering do we have or will we be getting that same level of data for bike and pedestrian safety? i know it's not as easy to gather since i think a lot of those muni calls either involve the police or are 311 calls. but it would be interesting to know if that same level of data exists for bike and ped because it can help in our safety quest. >> we can ask [speaker not understood] reiskin. >> one other item. i feel that from our day long strategy meeting that we may have left some sort of hanging unanswered questions from staff, particularly on the bicycle strategy where on the last page we were asked if we wanted to ask staff to focus on hot spots or corridors. and we don't -- obviously can't stay with us. discuss it today, but i wonder if we need to come back and retouch on that. * it occurred to me on this weekend when i was riding that we have a bike strategy, we have a pedestrian strategy, but we don't really have a corridor strategy yet, which i know will evolve out of

to join us as well. oftentimes we can learn from each other what are the better practices and what this coordination means in this day and age. it isn't just talking through but identifying the gaps that exist. and for our youth those gaps could be literally life dependent. and whether it's mental services. whether it's education. whether it's getting a referral to a job. or counseling. whether it's just those two days getting out of either incarceration or something to do with our criminal justice system. we have to pay more attention to the whole level of existence. and i want to thank all of the agency heads for coming here together. this is my understanding, the first time we have asked everybody to come together and to share what you are doing. as good as they might be, as great as they might be. that we still have gaps. and i would be the first to admit it in our city. while we are probably exhibiting of the most successful things we are doing. whether it's 5,000 more summer jobs. we will do more of that. and whether it's getting an exciting grant from the department of labor

't necessarily identify today but we use the five year prioritization process to identify and traffic calming and pedestrian and safety and signs and those are all programs and finally expansion and major capital projects and transit effectiveness project and these other projects, so one -- just to get us started one way of thinking about investment scenarios. well, just take the discretionary funds that we have and if you remember back to some of the revenue discussions in the past with information items there is 3.1 billions dollars in truly discretionary funds to prioritization through the sft p and split it among the groups i think close to .6 in each category, so that's one way of doing it, or you could think about addressing sort of a similar percentage of need in each category, and so this -- what you see is an example of that. take that 3.14 billion sort of achieve a certain similar percentage of the need in that category across all categories. and there are other ways to think about the guiding framework for the investment scenario. we could focus on sogr exclusively and we will

of principles, rather than specific positions on bills. as it will allow for us to carry out common positions that reflect either our own growth and objectives with protecting and increasing transportation revenue and allow us to work with other authorities across the state and ntc. and other partners. we have also conducted with the mayor's office on these principles and we are going to work forward to hopefully establish some of these to become real. over the last year, we have actually recognized some successes from the legislative program, and the subway has reached its full funding grant agreement and advocating for significant appropriations for high speed rail at the state level and map 21, the federal bill guide and appropriations have been authorized through 2014 and significant expansion of tifia, for large projects in particular. we also have seen a parody with the tax benefit for transit at $240 a month which will carry through for the end of 2013. this is parody with the parking pretext benefits. so with this in hand, we make recommendations for a 2013 program, which will begin o
special use district that has been in place for a number of years that creates restriction on what kind of business can go in there. anytime you place limitations there are unintended consequences. we are dealing with tweaking that as well, the point is that what works in one neighborhood may not necessarily work in another and whatever you come up with something that should be reflecting have what the neighborhood needs and what the community wants. what i see here is a compromise that strikes i think a good balance among the various interest with something like this i think a good deal of deferens should be given to the supervisor and the community who understand the ground to represent that district w that i -- and by the way, a couple points i know that i would expect walgreen's to continue to work with the community. this is approved to continue with the district of supervisor and it's great to see there will be 30 union jobs created and i'm sure walgreen's will make sure we have a diverse population of the work force and would encourage that and kudos to the community groups and
and the ortearial track and the schools track. the mta is looking to rebalance the program and by and large used for the streets track and look at the other two tracks and not to eliminate it but shift more resources to the other two tracks where speeding and accidents are happening in the city. in october 2012 the mta did a presentation about the local streets track revision. this presentation is on the commercial and arterial and school track revision so all three pieces are coming together. we will come back next month with a revision to the program priorities and also hopefully an amendment to the fiscal 2013-2014 of this for prop k. we do a comprehensive update on this for traffic calming. you will see a much larger program that encompasses all the changes before you and the next action item is for the fiscal year 2013-2014 and to solidify the policy items for today. i believe that is it for me. >> thank you. >> good morning mr. chair and commissioners. thank you so much for having me today. i am marian [inaudible] and with the san francisco municipal transportation agency and it's
with the ramp program has to do with people using the medallion just to go to the airport and take what doesn't fit in a prius or an escape. i've had that concern for sometime now. i've addressed that with sfo people on how to handle that. what's happening is now that we have the 8,000 series and these other vehicles that are being added and i believe you're probably going to see another spike in hybrid medallions, but you do need incentivized drivers who don't have a medallion down the road for them to still service that very important community. i've given a suggestion previously, and i'm going to bring it again to you. you need to work with the para transit coordinating council and the broker to subsidize the time and gas that is aped expended by the drivers who actually have a good heart. but it's not economically feasible to do so because the medallion -- the price of the medallion holders are being paid by the companies won't be there for ever. that's going to sunset like everything else is sunseting. and i believe if we subsidize those rides 5, $7 a ride, so, there's work being done on

, the topic is close. >> i had a question, my brother lives close to this area, to miss hirsch who gave us her presentation. the area from lake shore plaza to before 23rd avenue, i'm wondering why that area was chosen. i did notice the bike lanes. it's an $800,000 grant. i have curiosity about why this stretch was chosen and how it enhances the i am improvements that have been in the pass like the bike lane. >> certainly, these scene scene intersections were chosen largely because of the need as well as the fit with the funding source. these highway safety improvement grants require a very stated driven cost analysis and to the kinds of accidents happened and kind of treatments and the kind of values determined to reduce accidents and that's how we selected these intersectioned. they do have a repaving project insulated for 2014. we are working to minimize disruption to that area. >> thank you. very much. >> supervisor yee. >> yes. i want to alert the public and thank you for being concerned about pedestrian safety. we are going to have a meeting some time in march and i welcome people to co
